February 14th 2009 2PM+: Phantom Power: The Ghost and the Leech [part2] with Martin Kuentz

... two communicating devices are involved: a "leech" and a "ghost".

[RFID Workbook]

Phantom power extends Ghost and Leech explorations of alternative
radio constructions, ranging from powerful transmission devices (1W+
FM), which can well extend the range of personal broadcast, through
the psychophone [Franz Seidl] for time/space dislocation, to simple
parasitic gadgets, harvesting power from radio waves [RFID //
Fernsehturm]. Participants will construct a selected device, gaining
knowledge of simple principles and methodologies.

This second workshop proposes an imagination which extends beyond
"free radio", "natural radio"; an inserted ghost question for
polymorphous radio prosumers, Berlin's new Raketenmensch ["live
forever, in a clean, honest, purified Electroworld"].

Participants need not have attended the first workshop.

Workshop fee: 10 euros [all parts and food]

Please email m at 1010.co.uk to reserve a place.






Workshops led by field-expert practitioners extend over realms of code
and embedded code, environmental code, noise, transmission and
reception, and electromysticism. Workshops solely utilise free
software and GNU toolbase.
